Ep.12 - Amber McKellar - Black Lives Matter Pt. 2

Hanging out and talkin' cheerleading and racism and why black lives matter with our friends.

Part 2 of an up close and personal look at the injustices and inequity that exist in America for black people as well as within our sport for black athletes. Long time friend of ours through our time together on UCA Staff, Amber McKellar joins us discussing her personal experiences in dealing with racism in and out of cheerleading. Once again we go in-depth talking about the responsibilities and duties of being coaches and being 'woke' in the face of institutionalized racism. Also is our first Zoom interview, exciting times amidst the Coronavirus Lockdowns on 2020. Thanks for tuning in!
